Many people are asking as to why the Mountainview generators switch on later during loadshedding.
The rooibuilt generator next to country college is switched on immediately during loadshedding to pump water to the mini reservoir at Mountainview..
Once the Mountainview reservoir starts filling up with water at times 30 min or 45 minutes before loadshedding ends then the generator at Mountainview is switched on.
I was told that they cannot switch on the generator at Mountainview when the mini reservoir is empty because it will burn out the generator.
